Eredivisie Cranks Out Lightly Racist “B.A. Baracus” YouTube Clip for Jozy Altidore

U.S. national team striker Jozy Altidore doesn’t look all that much like Laurence Tureaud, the actor known as Mr. T,  who played B.A. Baracus on the laughable, lovable mid-1980s TV show The A-Team.

But to the goofy Dutch journalist who did a recent postgame interview with the former MLSer, well, the two are dead ringers. The lame comparison, awkwardly made (though graciously handled by Altidore), has spawned the following A-Team themed clip from YouTube channel Eredivisie Live:

We get it, AZ Alkmaar are an A-team, and Altidore is African-American, just like Mr. T, but … come on. This is weak sauce. (And just for the record, the catchphrase was “I pity the fool,” not “Shut up, fool.”)

But hey, nice goals! Here’s to many more this season.
